Re: What causes porn addiction???

Does exhibitionism imply having sex in front of other people? I've always assumed that the term also relates to those who have a desire to expose their genitals and/or to masturbate in front of others, as in the term 'flasher'. Other exhibitionists, if wealthy, like to draw attention to themselves ...

Re: What causes porn addiction???

I have no problems with the naked body. I'm happy to go naked if everyone else is naked. I'd feel a bit self-conscious, however, if I found myself naked in the middle the high street, since everyone else would be fully clothed. I could even get used to being a life-model for an art class, since the ...

Re: What causes porn addiction???

AS, I'm not forcing my views on anyone. That would be impossible. All I can do is speak of the mental and physical aspects, since holistic therapy is my background. For example, as said, a high proportion of porn actors were sexually abused as children. For this reason, they are not making a healthy...

Re: What causes porn addiction???

AS: Well, thank you Mr. Unoriginal for giving my pro porn argument a boost. There's another reason why porn can be a positive thing Morpheus....watching it makes guys like RU run the other way! It's RU repellent ! Funny, but I see it a different way. RU has been emotionally damaged by premature (?) ...

Re: What causes porn addiction???

AS, again you misread me. I'm not talking about legislation. Richard is proposing an ethical pornography, I'm exploring the possibilities. I'm not proposing censorship either, as this is unlikely to be successful. I'm suggesting that people educate themselves about the humantarian abuses associated ...

Re: What causes porn addiction???

The first thing is that free speech and liberty are fine things. However, we need to take great care to ensure that such rights are not employed as an excuse for all manner of abuses. Abuse comes in many subtle forms. Speaking from the perspective of a therapist, anyone who is emotionally damaged du...

Re: What causes porn addiction???

Yes that's more or less where I'm coming from Richard - if indeed, there is such a thing as ethical porn! I go back to my earlier suggestion of promoting old-fashioned erotica, which always leaves a lot to the imagination, rather than showing explicit violent, sadistic sex. Porn addicts have become ...

Re: What causes porn addiction???

Camus, whilst I agree with much of what you say, I'm not quite sure if you understand exactly where I'm coming from. I'll try to explain it again. If this still doesn't make sense, then I don't know how else to explain it! Or maybe you do know what I'm saying and I'm misunderstanding your own view :...

Re: What causes porn addiction???

A final note about the special status of sexuality. Once we have all decided that porn is always morally bad, why stop there. We will have to look at violent and degrading films, music, books and so on. Rousseau argued that the theatre was morally wrong because it encouraged the audience to side wi...

Re: What causes porn addiction???

AS wrote: His shame comes from the fact he was told masturbation was wrong and that good girls don't. He sees sex as something men "do" to women. He does not understand that women desire sex the same way men desire sex. He places women who are not ashamed of their sexuality into groups and label the...

Feminisation of Man? Neigh Satan lad, weep not. You'll soon be singing like Andreas - and his balls remain perfectly formed so I'm told :P

Re: What causes porn addiction???

Thank you for getting back to this Nisus. I'm not saying that your entire worldview was shaped by porn, only that it may have contributed to your extremely sexist notions about women (as I perceive your notions). I feel that exposure to hardcore porn at the tender age of 12-13 years is potentially v...
